Frenchman Richard Gasquet pulls out from Beijing tennis

at The Queen's Club tennis tournament.

First it was Andy Roddick. And now Richard Gasquet is pulling out from the Beijing Olympic 2008 as well.

Gasquet who is a Frenchman perhaps could be a Pro-Tibet? Or perhaps I should say that the French people are not welcomed in China?
"In agreement with his coach Guillaume Peyre, Richard Gasquet announces that he will not take part in the Olympic Games," Team Lagardere said in a statement."
Roddick on the other hand chose to skip this year's controversial Olympic event by concentrating on preparing for the U.S Open by playing at the hard court Legg Mason Tennis Classic.

Personally, I don't care if Gasquet or Roddick taking part in the Olympics or not. It doesn't make any difference.
